Hi there..........I had many questions about creating THIS CARD and my local scrapbooking store asked me to do a tutorial so here it is....my first one. It is super easy to do and since so many of us are visual learners, I hope these photos make the process more clear.
I taped my paper down with temporary adhesive to my work surface. Then I added my mask on top of my paper (made by Mr. Huey) and taped that down to hold everything in place.
These are the colours of Distress inks that I used and the application tool.
Broken China, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers
I rubbed the inks onto my paper randomly with my inking tool until the whole piece of cardstock was inked.
Next, leaving the mask in place after my cardstock was all inked, I stamped over it with the snowflake stamp using the same Distress ink colours.
This is what the coloured and stamped sheet looks like when the mask is removed.
I inked the edges using the same colours again to pull it all together.
I stamped the sentiment and embossed it, then cut the piece for the front of the card. I cut a snowflake using my Spellbinder die in my Cuttlebug and while still in the die, sponged on some more ink so when removed it would define the snowflake. I attached it with pop dots and added a jewel in the center.
Here is a shot of the set from Penny Black that I used called
Let it Snow
Well that's it. I have to say it was fun putting together this first tutorial. Enjoy!!
